“We are delighted to be expanding the reach and impact of the Making Links Scholarship programme across Europe. The Programme offers support that historically many individuals entering the legal profession might naturally have had access to through family, school, or other networks. To ensure that the legal sector is truly representative and inclusive we need to level the playing field and make sure that there is equal access to opportunity.”
